She was generous with her time, volunteering for St. Elizabeth Hospital, St. Bernadette Parish, and was also a member of the Darboy Post #256 of the American Legion Auxiliary.
    Florence leaves wonderful memories for her family to cherish: she was the best SCRABBLE player ever and never seemed to run out of two letter words. She had a very sharp mind, and enjoyed games of all kinds, playing cards, bingo, and crossword puzzles. She was also an excellent cook, and all will fondly remember her famous chili or the special melting moments cookies she baked.
    She is survived by two daughters, Julaine "Julie" McMillan, Appleton and her special friend Leigh A. "Augie" Wachel; and Cheryl "Sheri" (Bill) Weyenberg, Green Bay; four grandchildren, Jody Landers, Green Bay, and his fiancee Jackie Rockwell; Jayme Landers, Chicago, and her special friend Brian Kelly; Todd (Deanna) Weyenberg, Green Bay; and Jennifer (Marcus) Smith, Grayslake, Illinois.
    Her six great-grandchildren were the loves of her life, Travis Vervoren, Cortlyn Kelly, Kelsey Weyenberg, Grace Weyenberg, Connor Smith, and Caden Smith.
    Florence also has three sisters: Julia Pankratz, Darboy; Grace Vander Heiden, Kimberly and Dorothy Kruckeberg, Appleton; two brothers, Gordon Gerrits, Appleton, and Marvin (Mary) Gerrits, Black Creek. She is also survived by Bud's sisters, Lucille Davidson, Menasha; Shirley (James) Ciske, Appleton, and Sharon (Richard) Schierl of Menasha. Florence was preceded in death by her parents, Jake and Catherine Gerrits, her husband, Bud; sisters Bernice (Levi) Kern, Joan Werner, and Evelyn Gerrits; brothers-in-law, Jerome Pankratz, John Vander Heiden, Donald Kruckeberg, Norman (Marion) Horn, and Charles Davidson; a sister-in-law, Audrey Gerrits; and by Bud's parents, Fred and Emma Horn.
    The funeral liturgy for Florence will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, April 6, 2009, at ST. BERNADETTE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 2331 E. Lourdes Drive in Appleton with Fr. Donald Zuleger officiating.
